Warm, Professional Service & Outstanding gourmet cuisine presented in a beautiful venue. We were warmly greeted by Paolo, when we stopped in to make a dinner reservation in late October. A lovely place within the walls of Montefalco, we thought. Next evening, our meal was...outstanding. From the delicious, new olive oil and fresh bread, the seasonal white truffles to the flavorful lamb complemented by a wonderful Sagrantino wine. The thoughtful service from Paolo, Tami and the entire staff made the evening great. In the middle of dessert, we decided to return for dinner the next evening. We asked Paolo to suggest the Sagrantino for dinner on our final evening in Montefalco. It complemented the beef perfectly. We were happy to offer our personal complements to the chief. We are already planning our return visit with friends next May.More

Montefalco, which is charming and has a quite nice museum for its size, could be a destination simply for this standout restaurant. All the ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality, ranging from the new olive oil, fresh and varied breads, both black and...white truffles, spinach, pasta and steaks. The presentations are delightful and fabulously tasty, and steak was cooked to perfection medium rare. The wine list is long and includes reasonably priced local wines. The staff are all friendly and attentive, including our totally bilingual (originally from England) delightful server. The price of truffles had gone down a bit since the menu was printed so they charged us less for our wonderful white truffle pasta than the listed price. An amuse bouche at the start of the meal and gift of a recipe at the end were nice touches.More

Eat At This Restaurant! This is one of the best restaurants we've ever had the pleasure to dine, not just in Italy but throughout our travels and in the United States. The food is superb, just delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant is beautiful. And...the service is beyond wonderful. We were greeted so warmly as we stepped inside and that same warmth and attentiveness continued throughout the evening. We saw other diners receive the same excellent service. Temi, our server, was kind and gracious. She helped us navigate the menu and make the right choices for us. We chose a wine flight with our meal and loved tasting the local wines. Honestly, we can't say enough about how perfect the experience was. We ordered the gnocchi, the pasta dish with the seasonal white truffles, then shared the beef dish followed by two desserts, the apple pudding and the chocolate pudding. Just wonderful! Don't miss this restaurant.More

So happy we picked this restaurant for our dinner in Montefalco! My husband and I reserved the first available time - at 7:30 PM on a Sunday. The restaurant is located on the wonderful main piazza of Montefalco, in the same building as the hotel...and spa. Right from the entrance we had a very warm and cheerful welcome from the front desk person and then Paolo, our waiter for the evening. Upstairs there is a lovely room with an artistic touch and definitely a cool place to have a dinner in a colder season. We were taken downstairs to a marvelous covered patio that also has an open terrace to admire the view or have a smoke. Paolo helped us to choose the best table and then brought a welcoming glass of bubbles. He also made a couple of recommendations about the wine and introduced the specialties of the day, that we actually ended up taking. The food was well presented, had the right temperatures and well balanced taste. We accompanied our meal with Sagrantino wine (and Sagrantino passito for the dessert), which I highly recommend as one of our favorite wines in general and as the typical and probably most famous red wine from Montefalco. You can take it by the glass too so you can try different wine producers. Anyways, we really enjoyed the food, the wine and the atmosphere of the restaurant and especially the beautiful evening on the terrace with amazingly accommodating Paolo that treats every guest as VIP.More

My wife and I have enjoyed meals at many wonderful places all over Italy in the last 25 years. However, in our opinion, the Locanda del Teatro in Montefalco is the absolute best because it is equally superb in every important aspect, Presentation, Taste and...Service. The new enclosed patio dining offers good views as well as protection from sun, wind or rain. The menu offers so many enticing choices that you might wish to dine there several times in one week. Likewise, the wine selections will not disappoint. If you are in Umbria, it is a “must go” choice!More

Walking into Locanda del Teatro is like walking into a labor of love and passion. The restaurant is charming inside (I’m always a fan of dimmer lights), the service is led by one of the owners, so it is impeccable, the food and wine and...even the wine glasses (one of my pet peeves when restaurants serve wine in bad glasses) are perfect in every way. Add in to the mix warm and charming diners sitting next to us, and you end up with a restaurant not to be missed. Run, do not walk to Locanda del Teatro for a warm and wonderful evening of food and cheer!More
